1991 Nissan Figaro is our BaT auction pick of the day

0

This 1991 Nissan Figaro is on sale now on Bring a Trailer and the auction will end on May 2.

Designed with retro styling, a small 1.0 liter four-cylinder engine and a retractable soft top, the Figaro is a unique car in the Japanese domestic market.

This one has spent time in the UK and is wearing custom Firenze red paint.

In 1991, Nissan launched the Figaro in its home market of Japan alongside two other retro-futuristic small cars – the Pao and the Be-1 – as well as the snail-like S-Cargo minivan. . Le Figaro is arguably the most glamorous of the quartet, as it incorporates scaled-down 1950s styling and a retractable soft top. This one, which has been refurbished and repainted in Firenze Red Metallic paint, is offered for sale on Bring a Trailer, which, like Car and driveris part of Hearst Autos.

Although it is a small, light convertible, the Figaro is certainly not a Miata. Its small 1.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops just 75 horsepower and drives the front wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. This is a car to roll and turn heads at Cars and Coffee meetups.

The cream-coloured leather is slightly worn and the soft top, although replaced in 2021, has a few nicks at the corners. The rear seat upholstery is also cracking, but overall the Figaro is in good condition. Mechanically, the owner reports that the steering rack, a CV boot and the spark plugs were recently replaced, and an oil and brake fluid change was performed.

The Figaro is relatively rare, and not just because it was only sold in Japan. Only 20,000 examples were produced in total and the car was only produced for one model year. Originally, Nissan planned to build only 8,000 Figaros, but the car proved so popular that another 12,000 were made available. Potential buyers had to enter a lottery for the chance to buy one.
